Prevention is not only more cost effective, but more humane than after-the-fact intervention

Thank you for visiting our website. Three women who understood that prevention was not only more cost effective, but also more humane, than after the fact interventions founded the Health Education Learning Project (HELP) in 1994. For the past eighteen years HELP has been on the forefront of providing comprehensive programs in the areas of HIV prevention, women’s health, and support groups for HIV positive individuals and LGBT youth.

The next year will be an exciting one for our organization. HELP was notified that our organization has been awarded funding to implement four programs in 2013 that address components of the National HIV Prevention Strategy. Please take some time to look through our website to learn more about our organization and the programs we offer. We welcome your feedback and comments.

The success of our organization and the programs we offer is possible because of the tremendous support we receive from our friends and supporters in the community. Please contact us if you would like to offer your support or to volunteer for one of our programs.
